The Principle of Drama
Oct 26, 2001
This lecture identifies the principle underlying the phenomenon of drama, or dramatic action, and integrates this principle with Ayn Rand's theory of evaluation (specifically her idea of "teleological measurement"). The lecture explains why certain human actions (dramatic ones) are worthy objects of esthetic contemplation, and others not.
